These very cool old fuel Barrels were used to transport kerosene, gas and diesel from refineries to Service Stations and even to end users like farmers who had accounts. I love the old Root Beer shapes of many of them and it just doesn't seem right to have a collection of Service Stations, Porcelain Signs, Antique Cars & Trucks and not have a Barrel Collection to go with it all. At some point we hope to get enough to put them on a display delivery Truck at the aaaLakeside Storage Museum so people can see how gas was delivered in the early days. My grandkids ask if these were used when "I was a little kid"? That tells you how old they think I am.
